Colorado River –

Flow: 2,430 cfs/Glenwood Springs

Conditions: Conditions are beginning to change as summer turns into fall. Hoppers and streamers are the name of the game right now. Nymphing has been productive with smaller BWO patterns now becoming commonplace. Attractor nymphs like perdigons, bullets, frenchies, worms, rubberlegs and princes are all catching some fish too. With cooler weather and a time change approaching, there’s no need to get out there early as the better fishing has certainly been afternoons into the evenings.
